  • I have heard of early teethers. Some kids work up to teething months in advance too.

  • I have a 8 week old that has a tooth coming in. I have been letting her chew on a couple teething things I got that I put in the fridge. God luck.

  • my daughter cut her first 2 teeth at 3 and a half months. Try teething rings or anything to chew on. We used the baby oragel and she hated that even more than the teething. I LOVED those homeopathic teething tablets. They were god sends!

  • I learned in my BF class that when a baby is drooling that could also mean that they are ready for solid foods. Try giving him something like cereal or jar food. Could still be teething or just an appetite.

  • I thought my son was teething at around 3 months. He drooled and always had his hands in his mouth. He didn't get any teeth until he was 7 months old. He may have been teething at 3 months but I think he was just discovering his hands.
